It’s Halloween this weekend. In Washington that can turn into political fright night.
So we thought we’d scare up some costume ideas to help those who are stumped.
One idea came from a comment on our Obama: “Skinny but tough” blog post from afuller who writes “Best new Halloween Idea: Socialist Mop!!!” We’re thinking red body outfit and crazy wild hair.
Another inspiration from a friend suggesting going as a teabagger (the protesters against all policies Obama). That should be fairly easy — cover yourself with tea bags — and it has the added benefit that if you get a bit parched and find some boiling water you’ve got all the makings of a thirst quencher.
The Daily Show on Comedy Central has come up with a clever costume for Cap’n Trade — think comic book hero like Captain America.
